    HI,
    I seem to have a real problem on my hands. When I attempt to restart Win XP it just sits there for about 2 min. Then eventually it will restart. Anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks

    When it "just sits there", at what point is it halting?

    Shutdown?
    Restart BIOS splash?
    Restart Windows Splash?
    etc.

    Does it not show this holdup when first booted?

    Sounds like you still have some programs running in the background and it takes time for the comp to shut them down before restarting.
    Make sure everything is shut down including icons in your task bar then restart.

    I finally figured it out. I have the new Itouch software running and it is a noted problem on the Logitech website. So I disabled that a computer shuts down right away.

    Yeah sometimes when those problems run in the background, it takes extra time to shut them all down when you shut down or restart. I would go to msconfig in and uncheck some of the stuff you dont use so its alot easier to shut down
